Country Gospel Trio Sings 'How Great Thou Art'

Country gospel trio Canton Junction lead us in worship with the classic hymn ‘How Great Thou Art.’ This iconic song is the perfect reminder that our Lord is always in control.


""When Christ shall come,
With shouts of acclamation,
And take me home,
What joy shall fill my heart!
Then I shall bow
In humble adoration
And there proclaim,
‘My God, how great Thou art!'""

This hymn was originally written in 1885 by Swedish evangelist, Rev. Carl Boberg. He set the words to a Swedish folk melody.

The hymn became translated to German, then Russian, and then into English. An English missionary named Stuart Hine was responsible for this while he was working in Ukraine and heard a congregation sing the song in Russian.

However, ‘How Great Thou Art' did not gain worldwide popularity until it was performed by George Beverly Shea on a Billy Graham crusade in 1957. Today, Canton Junction is singing these iconic words and it’s absolutely beautiful.

As you listen to these words, be comforted by our Lord and let Him wrap you in His loving arms. We are so blessed to serve such a gracious Father in Heaven and the lyrics of ‘How Great Thou Art’ are the perfect way to praise His Name.

1 Chronicles 29:11 “Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all.”
